Post Factory SQL/PMI on virtual machine
We are planning to convert an existing Factory SQL/PMI installation from a physical server to virtual to improve reliability and recovery time.

Does anyone know of any caveats or gotchas that we should consider prior to doing this ?

More info on our installation:

We have the following licences:
    Factory SQL v4
    Factory PMI v3
    Reporting Plugin v1
    KepserverEx v4.0
    Siemens Suite
    Modicon Suite
Using MySQL for the database.
We have two network interfaces. One for PLCs the other on the corporate side.
No serial connections.

Thanks in advance for any feedback :thumb_left:

I imagine that in the few months since you've asked this you've figured it out, but just for completion, with the components you've listed, I don't think you'd have a problem, except potentially with Kepware. Even there you should be fine, but you would want to check with them... I think they improved VM support somewhere along the way.
